Bengaluru, June 18: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai is leaving no stone unturned to make Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s state visit a grand success. Preparations are in full swing for the two day visit on June 20 and 21. “We have made all the preparations to make it a grand success,” Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said.

The Chief Minister was speaking to media persons after inspecting the preparations at Kommaghatta grounds in Yeshwanthpur constituency where the Prime Minister is scheduled to address a public rally.

The Prime Minister is set to arrive on June 20 on a two day visit to Bengaluru and Mysuru. “We have received his tour schedule. All of us including our senior leader DV Sadananda Gowda, my ministerial colleagues and the MLAs of Bengaluru are working to ensure that the programmes are conducted efficiently. The officials from BDA, BBMP and the Police too are working in association with the SPG to ensure fool-proof security for the Prime Minister,” Bommai said.

PM’s schedule

The Prime Minister is scheduled to arrive at 11.55 am at Yelahanka airbase and reach the Indian Institute of Science by helicopter to participate in two programs. He is set to inaugurate the Brain Cell Research Centre established at a cost of Rs450 cr by Kris Gopalakrishnan and lay the foundation stone for an 850 bed Research Hospital being built by MindTree.

Foundation for Suburban Rail project

The much awaited Suburban Rail project for Bengaluru is set to take-off on the same day as the Prime Minister would lay the foundation for the Rs15,000 cr project which would provide mass transit connectivity from the heart of the city to many localities in the outskirts of the city, Bommai said.

Apart from this the Prime Minister would launch 6 railway projects. He is also scheduled to lay the foundation stone for the Satellite Town Ring Road connecting Dabaspet on Tumakuru road with Old Madras Road near Hosakote. Union Transport minister Nitin Gadkari agreed to provide special concessions for the project after Chief Minister Bommai’s repeated efforts to convince him on the importance of the project. After launching these development projects the Prime Minister would address a public rally at Kommaghatta, Bommai said.

Making the visit a grand success

Chief Minister Bommai who visited the program spots and inspected the preparations said, “the preparations are in full swing. A huge gathering is expected for the Prime Minister’s programs. So all the arrangements are being made to ensure that all the programs turn out to be grand successes.”
